For many years, Stanford Law Professor John Donohue has used his extraordinary skill in the field of empirical legal scholarship in a dedicated 24/7 effort to reduce gun violence in the United States.   No legal scholar in the field has done more to fight the NRA and the gun manufacturers as an expert witness in major Second Amendment cases in federal court across the country, and to defend the legal foundation for common sense gun control measures in the service of public health and safety.

I am proud that Professor Donohue is a member of the Leadership Council of the USF Institute for Nonviolence and Social Justice, and our most important advisor on all legal and policy issues related to the struggle of our democratic society to address the scourge of rampant gun proliferation.  Above I am grateful, and full of admiration, for his tireless service in the struggle to protect all Americans from gun violence.

With his permission, I republish below an interview with Professor Donohue conducted a few days ago concerning the Supreme Court’s recent, terrible, tragic decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen.   I encourage you to read his incisive analysis.
